Udeng

hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

TY­ING ONE of th­ese is trick­ier than it looks. It is also sub­ject to fash­ion and per­sonal taste, laden with re­li­gious sym­bol­ism and can be used to des­ig­nate sta­tus and oc­cu­pa­tion. It is, how­ever, a nec­es­sary part of men’s tra­di­tional dress. You can buy stan­dard, pre-tied, ready­made udeng th­ese days that you wear like a hat, but that seems like cheat­ing.
